The Vintage Vocal Quartet
The Vintage Vocal Quartet is coming to fill your ears and your heart with the sweet swinging sounds of the Big Band Era.
The 1930s and 1940s hit the sweet spot when swing music, jazz music, and pop music were all one and the same. It was a time when every radio blared out music that was danceable yet sophisticated.
The Vintage Vocal Quartet is dialed in to the sound of groups like Glenn Miller’s Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Andrews Sisters, and Tommy Dorsey’s Pied Pipers, as well as singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Mercer, and Jo Stafford.
The Vintage Vocal Quartet has been delighting concert audiences and lindy hoppers all over New England. These four performers provide their own accompaniment on piano, bass, guitar and trumpet to complement their powerful harmony vocals.
When founder David Thorne Scott did a tour performing with the legendary Four Freshmen, he saw that vintage music — sassy and sweet, danceable and sophisticated — hits the spot for 21st century audiences. He came home to Boston and called up guitarist Paul Pampinella of the groundbreaking a cappella group Vox One and pianist Taylor O’Donnell, whose versatile voice can deliver jazz to funk with a whisper to a wail. Add trombonist and swing scholar Dan Gabel and you've got yourself a four piece harmony machine.
